Private security contractor at the Cold War MuseumThis is not the welcome you'll get at the Bentwaters Cold War Museum Rendlesham, the museum is literally dripping with volunteers eager to tell you about the history and the museum, there's an excellent little cafe and the rare right hand drive coach/ambulance will make you expect Hawkeye and Hotlips running up the aisle shouting medic emergency speak.  They are open this Sunday and Monday.

A couple setting up home in a Framlingham craneFramlingham feels like bird city at the mo'.  We saw three separate and enormous broods of Mallard duckling in The Knoll and a lucky couple have grabbed the luxury penthouse flat at the top of the crane on Mills Meadow ... the footpath down the side of the telephone exchange is finally open again, don't know why they had to close it in the first place.

Last week a flatbed Ford in Wickham Market (not Wimslow Arizona) was stolen with a metal seed drum on the back ... what's a seed drum?

It has to be said that in the Halesworth Cut Friday night the Hackney Colliery Band were LOUD but at least half of the full house had seen them at last year's High Tide

Hackney Colliery Band at the Halesworth Cut

festival so knew what they were getting and had come back for more.  Hard to categorise the band, they are thunderously driving, band leader Steve Pretty hot on the witty verbals and stage business, and snare drummer Luke Christie's expressive enthusiasm endearing and visually rewarding.  Last day of the festival this Saturday.
